Gambella - Ethiopia's wet western most region - shelters an important wildlife population. Livelihood and landscape are linked, with water as major resource. The Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority is responsible for the protection and management of the park. Gambella's National Park is undergoing a major review. The region shares an important border with the republic of South-Sudan and animals should easily move from one country to the other. Gambella's National Park also has potential for development of ecotourism.
This video is about the protection and preservation of Gambella's National Park. Under new management and new visions Gambella National Park is being transformed into a properly managed protected area.
